Venue / Sections / Add a video slide to your slideshow
In the Slideshow section of the Venue theme you can use a silent video background instead of a static image. To use a video background you need to choose the Video slide block type when adding a new slide. Since Venue version 4.6.3 and Creative version 1.0.0 you can use 'self-hosted' MP4 videos as well as videos streamed from YouTube. We recommend you use the self-hosted video option for better store performance and page loading.
Pro tip: Video slides can significantly affect down the page loading speed and general performance of your store. We recommend you use static images over video slides if performance is a priority.
Self-hosted MP4 video
The YouTube videos included within the video section are currently using the YouTube API which slightly compresses the video to 720p. Whilst using this API, we unfortunately don't have much control over how the video loads into the page or the quality. If this is an issue please contact support and we can look into how this can be changed.
